Imagine a society where a women’s voice is beyond recognition?
One year ago school girl Malala Yousafzai was shot in the head by Taliban gunmen for assertively speaking up for the right of girls to be educated. Malala experienced a catastrophic attack which has led to her being known as a young person with the drive to achieve something in life. Malala was requested to take public bus by her mother as she used to walk but she couldn’t risk any of the Taliban discerning her, as she was known for a valiant blog about rights for educating girls. Malala boldly specified that she didn’t want her future to be imprisoned in four walls and just cooking and giving birth, Malala didn’t state her name as she knew if she did it would end up being a ticket to a ferocious and a redundant death.
October 9th 2012 was a normal but stressful day at school for Malala as she was in the middle of taking her examinations so she had a lot to think about. But that didn’t stop Malala and her two friends from having a little gossip. But Malala unexpectedly noticed something peculiar – the road seemed desolate abandoned and bleak. Instants later the bus was flagged down by two young men as it passed a clearing, one of them spontaneously asked who Malala was. At first her friend wondered if they were journalists in search of her well-known friend but she had quickly grasped that Malala had sensed danger. The girls looked at her face thereby identifying her, in seconds between her friends turning to look at Malala the firing of lambasting bullets began. Unfortunately Malala was viciously shot by the gunmen, the bullet went through her forehead and straight into her neck. She quickly got rushed into hospital but everyone knew her life was in terrible danger, from Malala’s tranquil and innocent life had transformed into a troubled and distressed atmosphere.
